    I now have a fireclown for 16 or 17 years, My oldest fish was an 18 year old cusk eel that died in an accident.
    I have had a figure eight puffer in salt water for 12 years and one of my first fish was a percula clown. He was 12. That was in the 70s.

    Good poll Krish!

    I had freshwater fish that lived over ten years. My first saltwater fish after moving from NY was a yellowtailed damsel I bought 8 years ago and Rhodes19 has now in his system. Im told all my corals in NY are still in the display tank I left them in along with a Jewl Tang I put in there when I moved. There still waiting for me to come get my live stock! LOL
    If we ignore the environment
    maybe it will just go away....
